Caribbean Rum Punch or Caribbean Tropical Mocktail
This drinks is a perfect party drink. It can be made the classical way with rum or non alchoholic.
Any Caribbean party is not complete without rum punch. Rum which is distilled from sugar cane is produced on just about every Caribbean island so it is the favorite alcohol of the people. Rum Punch is a delicious concoction of rum, tropical juices, lime juice and sugar. Here I created a non-alcoholic version for those who don’t drink alcohol.
You can serve the base mixture as a non alcoholic mocktail, delicious for everyone to enjoy from kids to adults.
But that doesn’t mean the adults that drink alcohol need to skip out. Just add a shot of rum to the base and your classic Caribbean Rum Punch is ready.
Garnish with papaya slices, if desired.
This punch is perfect for any party – whichever version you make!
